With the AL East pennant race heating up to an exciting finish, thought I would list my favorite baseball flicks - not in any particular order. Don't waste time checking. None of them have the slightest chance of being PD.

Bull Durham (1988)
The Pride of the Yankees (1942)
It happens Every Spring (1948)
The Natural (1984)
Rhubarb (1951)
The Pride if St. Louis (1952)
The Bad News Bears (1976)
A league of Their Own (1992)

And of course there have been some real turkeys like:

The Babe Ruth Story (1948)
Fear Strikes Out (1958)
Ed (1996)

Evidentially I have way too much time on my hands.

The Lou Gehrig Story is here.

Don't know if it is good, but if it's the same one I watched on TV as a kid, I thought it was OK way back when.

Also The Jackie Robinson story, is here, and even though the description says it is not a great movie, I enjoyed it!
